Short CV

Mrs Bindeman completed her M.Sc. in Genetics at the University of the Free State. She obtained her Honores degree with distinction at the same University in 2007 after completing her B.Sc. degree in Human genetics at the University of Pretoria. She is currently buzy with her Ph.D. degree with the title Patterns of spatial and temporal genetic differentiation in Imbrasia belina, and coevolution between I. belina and Colophospermum mopane
